Sweet Lue Louisiana Sweet Potato Crate Label

SKU: CRL1038 $3.00 USD



Historic Overview

This vintage mint unused yams crate label measures 9.25” Wide x 9.25” High. It went on a 50 pounds box of sweet potatoes and dates to the 1950s. It shows a cute little girl, in a frilly dress, proudly hoisting a large sweet potato over her head from a basket full of the yams. You can also see in the background a farmhouse at the rear of the sweet potato field. The yams were grown and packed by the Dupuis Produce Company of Breaux Bridge, Louisiana.

Sweet potatoes are not, however, what this Louisiana town is famous for. One of Breaux Bridge's main attractions is its cuisine, especially crawfish. Restaurants of Breaux Bridge were the first to offer crawfish openly on their menus, and it was here that the now world-famous crawfish etouffee was created. Breaux Bridge became so well known for its crawfish farming and cooking that, in honor of its centennial celebration in 1959, the Louisiana legislature officially designated Breaux Bridge as "la capitale Mondiale de l'ecrevisse" or "the crawfish capital of the world". Since this designation, the Breaux Bridge Crawfish Festival Association has hosted the annual crawfish festival, recognized as one of the state's finest festivals.

JuicyGold South Carolina Peach Label
$1.80
This South Carolina peach crate label measures 8" Wide x 2.87" High and features a golden peach on a black and blue background. It comes from the Ridge Peach & Vegetable Association which was a group of growers from Ridge Spring, Johnston, Trenton & Monetta, S.C. JuicyGold's sales office was in Ridge Spring. We believe this label dates to the 1950s.   Ridge Spring, South Carolina, was settled over 250 years ago and is still populated by decendants of some of the original families. First incorporated on December 23, 1882, the town held a Centennial Celebration in the Fall of 1982. Beautiful plantation houses were built throughout the area after the Revolutionary War. Many of these lovely homes have survived and grace the countryside. The town was named Ridge Spring for the natural raised ridge of the land and for the spring of pure water which provided delicious drinking water.   Cotton began as an important crop in the early 1800s. Vast acreages were grown for many generations and transported by wagon to Hamburg, S. C. for shipment by barge to Savannah, Georgia. From early days the cultivation of the peach seemed particularly suited to the soil and climate of The Ridge. Through the years other crops such as corn, asparagus, soybeans, cotton and numerous more have been grown in the fertile soil of Ridge Spring.   There is an annual Harvest Festival each October. The charm and gracious southern living of this agrarian community continues today for those who call “the Ridge” their home and for those who are fortunate enough to visit.   WE GUARANTEE OUR LABELS TO BE AUTHENTIC AND AS DESCRIBED!
